Me and my girl came for a weekend to get away and relax from the city and that's exactly what we got. The view we had was amazing. The sunsets were great to watch from the front porch or even down by the water as they have benches there. There are a couple of waterfront restaurants in the area which were great and one literally down by the water where we stayed. The house was beautiful and our room was great with views of the Hudson and a small balcony to enjoy as well. Great job by hosts for the renovations. Extremely clean, and the artwork throughout the house was beautiful. They were really friendly and was helpful as can be. They even fixed up a bike for us so were were able to go biking on the bike trail which I highly recommend doing. Also went hiking at a near by park. Easy to get around the town with cabs as they are not that expensive. Overall a great experience and would definitely come back!

I had a fantastic stay at Andrea's place in Haverstraw! I stayed in the blauvelt room which was even nicer in person than I had anticipated. The home felt clean, modern, and very comfortable. Andrea was a great host- extremely responsive during the booking process, waiting on her front porch when we arrived, and unfailingly helpful with local suggestions and tips. She was very available but in no way overbearing. The home is easily accessible by train/ferry, though I'd recommend a car to venture further afield.

Had an excellent stay with Andrea and Nelson. They are very knowledgeable about the area - especially bike routes! The house is newly renovated, spacious, and covered in wonderful art, giving it a gallery-like quality. Very relaxing, and conveniently located too. Absolutely ideal, will definitely be recommending to friends.

I had a very nice stay in Haverstraw. The house is in a beautiful setting by the Hudson River. It's an older house from the heyday of the town, and has been lovingly restored and filled with artwork. It's within walking distance of the ferry terminal, if you wanted to try the ferry/train combination to get to Manhattan. I arrived in the evening, and the family and their dinner guests welcomed me graciously into their dinner and conversation. The bedroom was quiet and comfortable. The deep claw-foot bathtub, shown in the photo, is definitely worth trying.

Fantastic stay! Let's start with the exterior: beautiful structure lovingly restored with commanding view of the Hudson River, on a bluff overlooking a public park below, ready for beach combing. I was delighted by the interior, simple, tasteful and elegant... and very comfortable. I was so happy to see there was no over-the-top herd of pillows on my bed, or lacy Victorian curtains. Nelson, Andrea's other half is an artist, and a good one. I brought my bike and was delighted to find that Nelson is an avid cyclist. He told me about the Hudson River route, which I loved, and about the ride to the top of Bear Mountian. The house is just 7 miles south of Harriman State Park, a gazillion acres of hiking along mountain paths with great views of the Hudson Highlands and the river itself. Andrea and Nelson were gracious and interesting. I couldn't recommend this place more highly.

We had a truly great time staying at Casa Hudson, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a riverside getaway. The house is beautiful, and Andrea and Nelson are gracious, engaging hosts who were available for all of our questions and went out of their way to make our trip a pleasant one. The main street in town is right around the corner and had some good dining options--try UNoodles Snack Bar and Vilma's Bakery--but you'll definitely need to rent a car or be an intrepid cyclist if you'd like to go any further afield. It's easy to get to any of the sites in the area--we drove to Bear Mountain and Storm King, which was an easy, scenic drive--and spent a lot of time hanging out on the house's spacious front porch, which looks out on the Hudson. Our room was large, clean, and decorated with some great art pieces, and also had an excellent view of the river. We'll definitely be back, maybe with friends to take advantage of the second room!

Andrea was an outstanding host. The house has recently been remodeled inside and is gorgeous. Very clean modern lines but still retains the historic character of the building. We actually ended up in the Roma room by offer of the host and by mutual agreement but both rooms, Roma and Blauvelt, were excellent. The bed in the Roma room was comfortable and the room and view were great. Andrea also was very helpful in getting us settled in and offering advice on the area. We would recommend Andrea and her villa wholeheartedly.

I have stayed in many B&B's over the years. Most of them are quaint and usually decorated with antiques and Victorian in style. When I saw this inn I fell in love with the modern decor, and of course its proximity to the Hudson River. The host, Andrea was incredibly warm, and talked to me at length about the history of the inn, which was once a school house. I happen to love interior design and the great lengths people take to restore old homes. I fell in love with the decor, art work, comfort of my room and of course that porch with amazing view. My hostess gave me a tour of her organic garden and gave me the run down of all local places to eat. I chose the waterfront restaurant, which is one block away and sits next to a beautiful park. While I love bucolic B&B's, this one located in an urban, downtown area was a needed change of scenery. I hope to come back within the year and stay longer. There are so many things to do in Rockland County, but I didn't have the time to take full advantage of what's there.
